India star Lakshya Sen booked his spot in the final of the men's singles at the Commonwealth Games 2022 while Kidambi Srikanth will fight for bronze after losing the men's singles semi-final match in Birmingham on Sunday.

The momentum shifted towards Jia in the second game as he slowed the pace. A drop shot followed by a backhand winner made it 8-8 before he went into the interval with a 9-11 advantage. A slew of unforced errors from Sen saw Jia take the next five points to make it 9-16.

Sen tried to hang in the game but

after the Singaporean took a shoe change break at 15-18, he was able to level the match when the young Indian hit a forehand long. Sen built an 11-7 lead in the decider, though Jia made the Indian work hard for every point. The Singaporean was also given the last warning about the delay in between points.

Sen got four points and converted the first one with a deft drop shot that set up a backhand winner. "I didn’t get in the rhythm in the second but I managed to pull it off in the end. The crowd support also helped a lot in the first game," Sen said.
